As we all know, Bramhasri Mannargudi Periyavaa was one of a very small subset of Vaidheeka Karma authorities in recent past (Srimad Appayya Dheekshitar of Adayapalam was another one) that Sri Maha Periyava held in the highest esteem. Despite being an authority on Vedhanta (Bramhasri Mannargudi Periyavaa’s one of the granthams is a book that one needs to pass on Vedantham in Sri Matham exams), Bramhasri Mannargudi Periyavaa was praised by Sri Maha Periyava as the ultimate practitioner of Vaidheeka karmas. Bramhasri Mannargudi Periyavaa’s 200th Jayanthi celebrations is being held on June 6th & 7th. His gruham is currently being managed/maintained by Sri Matham.

In recent days, among Sri Maha Periyava’s `contemporaries`, it is probably Bramhasri Musiri Dheekshitar who might qualify for such high praise.
